More Pics of Garden and Harvest



Well, due to the cold weather that lasted up until the latter part of March we got a late start on Gardening. Then comes Spring and we get non-stop heavy rains which turned into flooding in the areas and saturated our Garden. Along came Summer with the hottest temps of 100 degrees everyday in July/August it seemed and our Garden got so dry and the tomato plants were dying. So just the other day we tore it all down with the exception of the pumpkin seeds which are now huge plants. Hoping we get some Bees to come around and pollenate. This is our first year to grow pumpkins. I am excited and can't wait to see how they harvest. It was nice for the last couple of days we got cooler temps around here. The other evening I was enjoying a glass of wine on the back patio and it was 77 degrees with a little breeze. It was wonderful! I had shorts on and went in quickly to put some yoga pants on LOL!!! I am tired of Summer it has been too hot here and dry. We got a tiny bit of rain the other evening as well! So ready for FALL and everything Pumpkin Spice! How is it in your neck of the woods? Enjoy the few pictures in and around the Garden.

Formal Tablescape for July 4th

Hello Bloggers! I just wanted to pop-in and share another July 4th themed tablescape I created for our Formal Dining Room. I thought it came out very pretty. I did not have the best of lighting and took pics in the morning, mid-day and evening. I hope you are not tired of seeing the same dishes. I did change it up a bit and added different things to this tablescape. I added the red Lennox stemware and used a different runner and placemats. I added candles and also the Firecracker type candles light up sparkly at night (when turned on). I also included pics of my upper balcony it too is decorated for the 4th. Actually, I have a lot of decor for the 4th scattered about our home inside and out. I have to share some pics I took the other day of my great niece. I love photography and tablescaping as you can see! I apologize for the sound not coming thru on video. It was just the TV blaring. I see that there are a few duplicates. Sorry! Enjoy all the pics and sorry if I posted too many! LOL! Have a great weekend.
